TV and shows

They get many TV channels here and they are getting the DVR system with it. With the DVR I try to record the shows that they do not watch and have to stay up late to be able to watch them. But if there is a game or some other program on that runs late then I only get to see part of the show or movie. It might be cheaper for me when I get my own home to purchase some programs to watch on my computer such as CBS, Hulu and Netflix to view the shows and stations that I prefer to watch.

I'm thinking about cutting the cord (as they call ditching cable). All I watch anymore are baseball games and the Travel Channel, and that's not worth $140 a month.

@fourwalls, that is outrageous. The price.

@thislittlepennyearns -- it's a bundle, but you're right.

My mom and uncle have a bundle that includes 3 tiers of channels (I think), and DVR on 1 TV, landline phone, internet and wifi and pay about $200.

I ditched my cablr/satellite 3 years ago now and I don't miss it. We watch everything online.

@Happy2BeMe I cannot get the MASN Orioles baseball games online. I have found online that they cannot show games online due to the rules of the MLB association.

I watch a lot of Netflix. It's hard when a game runs into the viewing time of your program.

I had Netflix a while ago, but I could not figure out how to find certain shows. And my games are on MASN and I can only get that on cable.

@dfollin They might not have had the ones you were looking for. They change up their shows from time to time, eliminating shows and movies all the time.

I have Amazon Prime. The only thing I see on there are movies that I have never heard of.

I have had Netflix for years and love it. I just found out that a couple of my old favorite tv show they took up this month so have to keep track of that in coming months. I can't get into Hulu to check and see if they have those shows either or I would subscribe to it.

When I had it I had problems finding particular shows. I like Hulu a lot because I can find network shows easier on there. Recent shows also and previous shows. I have gone into Hulu and they do not seem to have a page that we can go onto to see the shows.

We have so many channels with cable we never watch. I think it a waste, but my husband does not.

The problem is that the channels are broke up into 4 or so tiers and there are several channels per tier. But they only watch some of the channels per each tier.

I use my DVR a lot. I've got a lot of shows recorded, sometimes 6 episodes at a time. I just don't have the time to sit down and watch all of them when they air. My sister and brother-in-law have Netflix, and they let me use their account when I want to. But for some reason I only watch Netflix maybe once a month.

I use the DVR too for the shows that they do not watch then I only can watch them after they go to bed. Sometimes that is very late.

We don't have cable, because its WAY too expensive to get it out here, and also I'm not entirely sure we would be able to get it out here. We have Wifi, but just barely, and it's using my phone's internet as a hotspot- so I just buy anything we want to watch on DVD.
